The FINA Diving World Series is a high-profile competition which offers an annual meeting opportunity for the world’s brightest diving stars. This prestigious and exclusive event invites internationally-recognised divers, mostly medallists from previous Olympics, World Championships and World Cups.
In March-April, about 70 divers exhibit their prowess in a four-leg competition format which features ten events: women's and men's 3m springboard, 10m platform, 3m springboard synchro and 10m platform synchro. The 2015 edition featured for the first time 2 mixed events, 3m and 10m synchro. A total prize money of US$ 1'350'000 is distributed in the Series.
Launched in 2007 by diving powerhouses Great Britain, China and Mexico, other countries have since joined the "club" as host organisers: Canada, Qatar, Russia and the United Arab Emirates, boosting the sport's exposure on the international scene.
